Contractor Services

When you considered starting your own company it was probably because you had a good business proposition and not because you wanted to become an expert in the legal, financial and fiscal aspects of running a company.

That’s where Clarkson Cleaver & Bowes Ltd comes in. We help you succeed in your specialist areas by removing the need for you to be a specialist in our areas.

Our Services :

We offer everything you need to remain focused on your business while being safe in the knowledge that your accounting and taxation requirements are being actively looked after by a team of experts.
And because we’ve got so much experience under one roof you can rest easy in the knowledge that what we do for you is precisely what’s needed for your business and not just a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
After all, we wouldn’t enjoy our work so much if it wasn’t for the variety of services we provide, and our contractor clients wouldn’t appreciate our work so much if it wasn’t just what they need – and at a fixed price too.

Full Compliance Package :

Our full compliance package relieves you of financial administration chores and allows your efforts to be focused on your most important business asset – your customers. Our Full Compliance Package means you can be confident that your business meets all current and relevant legislation and there are no nasty taxation liability surprises around the corner.

The package consists of the following:

  • The preparation and submission of annual statutory accounts
  • The preparation and submission of the associated corporation tax return and calculations
  • Advice on how to maintain acceptable accounting records
  • Quarterly VAT processing
  • Running payroll for the company’s director
  • Acting as the company registered office where required and filing the Companies House Annual Return
  • A deemed salary calculation for one person if your business is subject to the IR35 legislation
  • An element of ad hoc advice & telephone support.

We also don’t want you to have a nasty surprise when our bill arrives, which is why we work on a fixed fee that’s paid either monthly or quarterly by Direct Debit. And since we know that every business is different we’re always happy to adjust the services we provide to reflect the support that you need.

Introductory offer

When you first subscribe for our full compliance service or a tailored version of it, we will prepare a ‘quick’ forecast for you. The forecast is designed to assist you in planning your finances and those of the company, and to decide how much you will need to set aside to cover your tax liabilities as they fall due.
Our clients find this financial forecast particularly useful and some ask us to produce revised figures following significant changes in their business activity. We are happy to provide this as an additional service on a fixed fee basis.

Self-Assessment :

Of course, you might be happy to deal with your personal tax return on your own but sometimes, when you are busy focusing on your business, it is hard to find the inclination to sit down to a task like this. Why not talk to us to see where we can help where you don’t have the time?

Other fixed fee services include:

  • Company formation/registration
  • Bookkeeping
  • Forecasting income and associated tax liabilities
  • Mortgage/rental references
  • Fee protection services

Our range of professional partners can also offer additional services such as Independent Financial Advice, Professional Indemnity Insurance and other Business Insurances. Just talk to us – it won’t cost you anything and it could save you a lot.
